bingolou has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Default

Girlfriend just purchased an 01 Taurus wagon with the 3.0L DOC SHO engine in it. Goes like stink. However, some previous owner took off the tags from the door posts that state proper tire pressures. I wouldn't be too worried normally as I would just use the pressures from my previous gen bull. However, hers has those narrow profile tires on it (16 inch). What is the proper pressure supposed to be? I thought of using the pressure stated on the tires but this is maximum pressure not recommended pressure. Anybody out there with an 01 bull, would you please take a look at your door posts and reply soonest?
I have a girlfriend that knows a fair bit about cars and my life will be hell on wheels until I get proper numbers. Why oh why did I teach her about cars as now I can't even fudge the truth a little bit. Oh well, at least she does the tune ups and oil changes.

Stickers Read 32lbs I believe, I inflate to 35.

The Motor you have is the Duratec, not the SHO.

Tire pressure sticker is on the inside of the gas filler door on the G4s. Ignore 30PSI, it drives much better with 35.

My 02 tec doesn't have that, its in the door jamb. it says front 32 rear 32, but i usually run them 35psi for a little firmer ride and better gas mileage.

Remember, the sticker is for STOCK tires. Once you get a fresh set, go by the sidewall rating.

That tire could go any number of cars. You should go by what the sticker on the car recommends and adjust for your preferences accordingly.
